The Twenty-First Century Mathematics Classroomandimpact of Technology in Teaching and Learning Mathematics



Students sitting quietly in rows to listen the class, raising hands to the questions posed by the teacher, and sincerely writing notes. Is this the 21st century mathematics classroom? No not at all because that was the traditional way of classroom. Present 21st century classroom means classroom equipped with digital tools, digital boards used to explain mathematics concepts, mathematics related graphs and diagram. Few mathematical concepts have become much easy to explain with the help of technology and diagram which we cannot draw easily on papers these have now become easy to draw. With the help of technology very difficult concepts of mathematics became easy to help students understand better. The term "21st-century skills" is generally used to refer to


certain core competencies such as collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving that advocates believe schools need to teach to help students thrive in today's world. In present classroom situation teachers have become passive and students have become active. Students in the 21st century classroom are learning by constructing their own knowledge with interacting with the teachers. The evolved 21st centuryclassroom is a productive environment in which students can develop the skills they will require in the workplace and teachers are facilitators of their learning.Computers in the classroom include any digital technology used to enhance, supplement, or replace a traditional educational mathematics curriculum. As computers have become more accessible, inexpensive, and powerful, the demand for this technology has increased, leading to more frequent use of computer resources within mathematics classes, and a decrease in the student-to-computer ratio within schools.
